The brutality shown in this video wasn’t necessary as the protestors are peaceful and unarmed. However, it is a bit unfair to compare these scenes to the ones of the powerless army in Saida and the North because things are more complicated than they look.
The Army Commander vowed to confront outlaws with all available means today. Let’s hope they go after outlaws everywhere in Lebanon without any exception.
The one soldier did swing his stick, but I kind of felt like they were getting run over and pushed with the fence by the crowd.
Ok I watched it again, maybe there could a been a little softer approach. But I couldn’t really see if any of the crowd was kicking, hitting or pushing them clearly.
